PRINT AND TEACH VOCABULARY!
Included is 12 WEEKS worth of vocabulary activities, quizzes, and answer keys from the 1000 most common SAT vocabulary words list. Each unit includes 10 SAT vocabulary words. (I have found that my students use their vocabulary words in their writing and assignments MUCH more when given 10 instead of 20 words per week.) I personally use these for standard level 11th and 12th grade students, but they can easily be used for any high school level.
Every unit folder includes four files:
1. Matching: I cut up the words and definitions and place them into plastic containers. Every Monday, students get into groups and grab a container. Using prior knowledge and educated guesses, they must match up the words and their definitions.
2. Sentences: After a certain period of time, students are given the sentences and re-match their words using context clues. I tell my students whether they have them all matched up correctly or not, but do not tell them which words are incorrect; they must use context clues. Once all of their words are matched up correctly (you check this), they write down the definitions and parts of speech on the back of their sentences.
3. Quizzes: There are two versions of quizzes. Versions A and B are the same, but in different order to prevent cheating.
4. Answer keys ARE included for every version of the vocabulary quizzes!
My students love using Quizlet to study for their vocab quizzes every Friday. Using the “matching” document, simply copy and paste the table into Quizlet and – voila! – your sets are made!
***CHECK THE SENTENCES BEFORE YOU PRINT! I like using my own name and friends' names in my sentences to make them more personal, so you can replace mine with yours or simply put random names in instead. (Or you can keep my crazy name in there!)***
